        I’m sick of these clowns spamming these boards with that crap. You would think this website would have some way to filter or delete that sh!t.

    Why do Sonnen and Florian feel the need to shout when they do the sportscaster news guy routine? Do they need better mics?

    Also, the video starts off with a clear video of Jones’ toe tearing off, then when the same video is shown again, the grossness is blurred out. WTF?

    Chael is a pretty cool dude. I have a lot of respect for any person who can handle a loss like that. His personality flourishes. I love it. :-)
